Productivity Linked-Wage System

Productivity-Linked Wage System (PLWS) is a wage system which establishes a link between wages and productivity or performance that will ensure that any increase in wages commensurate with higher increase in productivity or performance. The system enables employees to obtain a fair share of gains that arise from productivity growth and performance improvements.

The way forward for flexible and competitive wage system that enabled companies to make quick adjustment on wages. It will ensure job stability and reduces the likelihood of retrenchment in the event of an economic slowdown. Wage restructuring is about making wages more flexible and competitive. With a flexible wage system, company can adjust the variable components based on the business conditions.

In good times, employees can look forward for bigger bonuses and better incentives when both company and employees perform well.

In bad times, employees will have greater job security as company can make quick adjustment on wages to avoid retrenchment.

In line with the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (2016-2020), labour productivity is targeted to grow expected to create 1.5 million jobs by 2020, with targeted improvements in labour productivity through the continuous shift from labour- intensive to knowledge
intensive and innovation-based economic activities.
